About

Bear Macabre, also known as Malcolm, is a fursuit and jewelry maker based in San Diego, California! I'm currently studying entomology from home and hope to have a career as a forensic investigator.
I offer custom fursuit commissions when commissions are open, as well as premade fursuits when commissions are closed!

FAQ

Do you work with minors?
Absolutely, however there must be proof of parent consent before I will move forward with the commission.

Can you color match fur?
Yes! I will require a link to the fur or a swatch. If I don't have on or the other, there is no guarantee that I can perfectly color match. Also note that dye lots can change.

What types of payments do you accept?
I accept both PayPal and snail mail. USD only please.

Can you ship internationally?
Yes, but shipping prices will be higher and it may take longer.

What if I miss a deadline?
I discuss how much extra I charged for your deadline before payment is sent. If I fail to meet that deadline later on, I will refund you for what I charged and add compensation.

Do you take artistic liberty commissions?
I do! However, I do require payment to be sent before I start designing.

Do you make other fursuit parts?
Yes, I make heads, but I only give out quotes when I'm open for them.

Where do you get your fur from?
My main fur suppliers are Howl Fabric, BigZFabric, Fursuitsupplies.com, and Mendel's however, I will buy from other sellers if I can't find the color or texture I'm looking for.

Do you show work in progress photos?
Yes! I try to update you as much as possible throughout the commission process. Work in progress photos can be found on my Twitter and Instagram or I can directly DM them to you.

Where are you located?
I am located in San Diego, California!

Can I pick up my commission?
Absolutely! I offer in person pick-up at San Diego furmeets.

Are your costumes vegan?
Yes! I never use real animal parts on my work and never plan too.

Do you use parts by other makers?
Yes, I do! I usually buy silicone, resin, or plastic parts from Dream Vision Creations, Fuzzbutt Fursuits, and StuffedPanda Studios.

I have a pet allergy. Should I commission you?
I live with three shorthair cats that do come in contact with materials every now and then so I would not recommend commissioning me if you have allergies.

Do you make costumes for adult use?
No, I won't. I have nothing against the adult side of the fandom, but I am a minor and do not feel comfortable making costumes for adult use. Please respect my decision.

Can I chose the fabrics I want used?
Yes! I don't mind if you have something in particular that you want to use for your costume.

Do you accept trades? (Ex. Art, characters, fursuit parts).
No, I will not accept any trades for fursuit parts unless I have stated otherwise.
